I found an older thread discussing fatigue and the burning rubber smell that raises some questions about whether " Sunlight" or maybe a change in light spectrum may be causing excess Ozone to be created at ground level....What do you think?

A Paste from the other thread...

"Ozone is a gas that forms in the atmosphere when 3 atoms of oxygen are combined (03). It is not emitted directly into the air, but at ground level is created by a chemical reaction between oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the presence of sunlight. Ozone has the same chemical structure whether it occurs high above the earth or at ground level and can be "good" or "bad," depending on its location in the atmosphere.

Many thanks to IamJustanAmerican for this information...

Mods please re-locate if in the wrong forum, thanks.

Since early August when out walking my wife, son and myself have noticed this strong smell of rubber burning ( Tyres?). We live in the west of Scotland, not near any manufacturer or factory that might be producing the smell.

On talking with friends they have also mentioned the smell and the fact that you could drive 20 miles from home smell it, then smell the exact same smell a day later in your own front garden.

Like others I checked the car etc with no sign of the aroma coming from it.

Is anyone else noticing this smell? or have suggestions to what it might be?. It would be interesting to find it is widespread and not just located to my home town.



I don't live in Scotland so I don't know if I could smell it or not. But here where I do live, in Indiana in the US, I have always smelled burning rubber at different times. I think it may just be from cars and truck. You ever notice how someone outside not sitting close to you smokes a cigarette and you smell it even though you are not close? Smells have an amazing way of traveling.

Hi I live in Greater Manchester and am sick of this horrible smell of burning rubber. It is worse at night and I've only really noticed it recently. I love my garden but the smell sends me indoors. Not pleasant.

It's the never ending tire fire from the Simpsons.

LOL, I was just being funny. But that is sad you can't enjoy your days out. Could it be the smells wafting across England from the oil wells in the sea close to you?

I have a serious question for those who have smelled this. As noted on an earlier post, I've smelled this with a family member at the same time. Since I first read this thread, I've been looking into this and forming a theory. Maybe it's nothing...but it may be something pretty important. Hence, my question here.

Several have noted how hard to describe this smell has been, and ALSO mentioned it's transient nature. A few minutes, for example. Has anyone else noticed a smell at all similar to gun powder mixed in with the rubber smell?

From my point of view the smell is burning rubber, tyres burning is the perfect description. It lingers, sometimes barely noticeable then very strong. I dont know what gun powder smells like so would be unable to say if theres a hint of it within the smell.

I would be interested in hearing more about your theory.

I was hoping for more response, but it's rude to ask something like this and then just leave so I'll share my theory. It's probably nothing but my mind works in odd ways sometimes in drawing connections between disparate bits of information. Bear with me a for a sec here.

What got me started thinking here was the passing nature of what I smelled and what other people smelled. It came and it went fairly quickly and then just gone like it hadn't been there. I realize some are near something else generating a near constant odor, but for others it's been a couple minute thing.

So, I sat back and wondered what could generate transient odors which sometimes repeat, sometimes don't and are (apparently) being noticed in areas all over the world. Well, the only answer I could come up with as a source is the sky. One thought led to another and I found myself looking at photos of the Phoenix Lights sightings (The major event...not the lanterns and flares hoaxers have done several times since) and the sheer size these things would be.

Phoenix Lights

A story on here just a few days ago showed video of 'breaking technology' to visually cloak a full size tank in an open field, so the fact these would rarely be seen wouldn't be a surprise with a number of generations beyond what the public just saw. Okay...So maybe there would be 'craft' large enough to smell if they'd been somewhere with a strong and distinct odor. Where would crafts some have estimated at a mile or more in size have been that would leave a very strong odor....visual camouflage or not?

That was the basis for my question...and perhaps I keyed on something about the thread for a story seen years ago, but there is something about Space that apparently everyone whose been there describe as very strong, distinct and unforgettable. Kinda like burned gunpowder/sulphur/ozone...but not quite. It's apparently very strong on anything that has been in the vacuum for any length of time.

Smell of Space

For the sake of argument lets leave UFO's entirely out of it beyond saying these are likely Military craft not some kind of invasion fleet.
There are other things that crossed my mind though...like the noises people are hearing in different areas of the world that seem to some from nowhere and everywhere at once. What would it sound like if a craft that enormous blew vents or something similar while in a low hover, essentially parked? Someone had also posted a video here recently showing clouds moving over and around a large circular area. Well, that one was a natural thing...but there are dozens of similar videos and more than a couple looked like more than what the natural explanations describe it should be.

Anyway... Thanks for humoring me with a reply on my rather curious question. The lack of anyone else relating to the smell as I tried to describe it. without a link to bias the answer, tells me it was nothing but more practice in researching things in all likelihood. Still though...It would have been downright tacky not to finish my thought once started like I did.

I smelled the "smell" again two days ago, and it popped into my mind what it reminded me of slightly, nail varnish remover -acetone
s+f for you, because somethings not right here, ive never smelt this smell ever, in my 43 years on this planet,

Very respectfully, just to throw it out there as a possibility: Whatever type of area you are in at the time, could you be smelling a meth lab?

Sorry if my post was a bit rambling there. My post time was evening, but it was wee hours of the morning on my body clock. I just came back to add this.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

This is a thread that came up today, but shows an example of what I was talking about in the things being seen all over right now.

and..

www.bbc.co.uk...

That is the example of a Main Battle Tank fitted with gear to make it vanish entirely or mimic anything they'd like it to within similar size parameters. A little more googling should bring the Visual cloaking technology they have prototypes for now which is literally nothing more than countless tiny LEDs or displays to form an overall effect of re transmitting whatever is behind the object to visually appear as if nothing is there at all.

The sky would be the easiest to do it with I believe. What is simpler than mimicking a blue background or the clouds that are a chaotic pattern and always shifting anyway? It's not like anyone actually STUDIES what would otherwise seem to be a totally empty sky. Even when someone has been noticing odd things..or thousands of birds fall dead after hitting something in an empty sky (blunt force trauma as cause..yet nothing visible for the whle flock to hit as a group)....it's written off and ridiculed as a crackpot theory.

Anyway... Again, no one else seemed to key on the descriptions of Ozone w/burned rubber in the smell...so back to the drawing boards or at least wait until something more definitive than circles that look like natural phenomenon or passing odors that no one ever can track down appear to clarify matters.

It is a Skunk. Tonite we were hit by one, first the normal "Skunk" smell, Dad was breaking up some pot so we thought it was that, then there was a Horrid odor of burning rubber with hints of egg, the smell hits you in the chest. It seemed to drift thru the house like a living entity, then dissapated entirely.

Half an hour later it happened again from a different part of the house, the dog came in and, yep, he'd been sprayed. Do you have Skunks where you live? I swear I first thought that smell must be unearthly too.

woke up this morning and much to my surprise as I have just moved to the coast I am smelling this odd burning rubber smell again. I have been smelling this in the city before and always blamed a factory nearby doing illegal stuff through the night but I have moved and on this still windless morning with sea air I can smell it again. It is horrible and feels like somethings going on that no one knows or talks about. What is it? I have had a full survey done with no landfill nearby?

Ypu should all check your local pesticide spraying schedule. This is common the world over to control water borne insects like mosquitos. I often smell a similar smell on nights they spray.
